What is Meld?

Meld is a powerful and versatile visual diff and merge tool that allows you to compare and edit files and folders with ease. Whether you’re a developer, a writer, or just someone who needs to compare and merge different versions of files, Meld is the perfect tool for the job.

Comparing and Editing Files

With Meld, you can easily compare two or three files side by side. The tool highlights the differences between the files, making it easy to see what has changed. What sets Meld apart is its ability to edit the files directly in the tool itself. This means that you can make changes to the files and see the diffs update dynamically, giving you a real-time view of your modifications.

Comparing and Launching File Comparisons

In addition to comparing individual files, Meld also allows you to compare entire folders. This is particularly useful when you have multiple versions of a project or when you want to compare the contents of two different directories. Meld not only shows you the differences between the files in the folders, but it also lets you launch file comparisons, so you can dive deeper into the changes and make informed decisions.

Working with Version Control Systems

Meld goes beyond just comparing and editing files on your local machine. It also supports popular version control systems such as CVS, Subversion, Bazaar-ng, and Mercurial. This means that you can browse and view a working copy directly from these systems within Meld. This integration makes it seamless to compare and merge changes from different branches or revisions, saving you time and effort.

System Requirements

To use Meld, you’ll need the following:

– Python 2.6
– GTK+/pygtk 2.14
– GLib/pygobject 2.16
– GtkSourceView/pygtksourceview 2.10 (optional)

Please note that while there are ports of Meld available for Mac, the tool doesn’t officially run on Mac. However, if you’re using a different operating system, Meld is a fantastic choice for all your diff and merge needs.
